My mom is having surgery on aug 4th and I would like to be there. we need to be at the hospital 2 hrs early and her surgery will last 3 hrs and then you have an hr of recovery so we might be there for 6 to 7 hrs. I have a hard time trusting people. Even family members and its so hard for me to find a babysitter because i dont feel comfortable with someone else watching my daughter ! I dont want to take my daughter to the hospital with us because she will have nothing to do. My daughter will be 2 on aug 30th and she likes to run and play and she is roudy. But i am really nervous about getting a babysitter. its a fear that i have. i fear the worst. like will they beat her ? will they spank her for no reason ? will they feed her when she is hungry ? will they make sure she has water or juice in her sippy cup ? Will they change her diapers or will they let her diaper get really full before they change it ? will she come home with a rash ? will they mistreat her ? will they keep an eye on her and make sure she isnt getting into something she isnt supost to be in ? i can go on and on and on. Im a first time mother and she is my only child i dont want anymore and i think that is the reason i am so PROTECTIVE over her. these trust issuses is making everything worse ! I need to be there for my mother but when you have nothing but fear of leaving your child with someone it really makes you sick ! So my question is Do you have trust issuses with babysitters ? I dont mean people you dont know. ( I would NEVER leave my child with someone i dont know ) i mean family members? I need help !! I dont know what to do !!
